The Flight of the Angel

The Flight of the Angel

24 February 2019, 11:00 am – 12:00 am, Saint Mark's Square

The exciting flight of the Angel of Carnival officially opens the Carnival celebrations in Piazza San Marco. Welcomed in the crowded parterre by the groups of historical re-enactments in costume, it will melt the tension of the svolo in the embrace of the Doge and the audience, electrified by the scenographic show that always celebrates, even on national and international networks, the Venice Carnival.

As usual, it will be the Maria winner of the 2018 Erika Chia Carnival to take on the role of the new Angel of the 2019 edition.

The event will be preceded by the Corteo del Doge by C.E.R.S. - European Consortium of Historical Re-enactments, with the participation of the International Association for the Venice Carnival, Ass. Friends of the Venice Carnival and the Historical Group "Le Maschere di Mario del '700 veneziano".
